Words from our volunteers:

Thoughts from a volunteer…

The Andres is such a unique place. I love to tell others about it, or share their first visit with them.

Volunteering my time allows me to be a part of something I treasure. A lot of what I do is on the computer and I enjoy helping out with events now that they have resumed. As you might expect with such a special place, the other volunteers are special as well – a really great group of people.

Message from another Volunteer

It feels like my mountain.  As I put my time and my care into a trail or a sculpture site, I can’t help but think about the people who will come this way, and see this place just as I left it… a bridge between the art from the artists and the natural environment they placed it in.  I love knowing that what I do becomes part of the experience shared by people from the community that includes not only Brookline, or even New England, but the whole world.

Give yourself a reason to visit our Sculpture Park in all seasons – be a part of what strengthens the positive Andres presence in this world.
